Answering to the recent comments Joe Lynn Turner about Ritchie Blackmore’s revival of Rainbow, Ronnie Romero addressed to the band’s former singer.
A few days ago Joe was invited on “Rock Of Nations With Dave Kinchen And Shane McEachern” podcast, where he said: “That was, in my opinion — I’ve already said it’s a cheap imitation, a weak cheap imitation of… I don’t know, man. I don’t even know what to call it. It was a train wreck for me. I think he (Ritchie Blackmore) damaged the legacy that way of Rainbow. ‘Cause Rainbow was a fabulous band from start to finish.”
Ronnie Romero reacted to this statement via his Instagram account: “I don’t know and I don’t care what’s between The Main Man and some old ex members of the band, what happened or whatever. I’m just a normal guy who one day received the call from one of His idols to sing in the band He always dreamed of to sing… that’s it. I’m pretty convinced I did my job well, (same for Jens, Bob and David, wonderful musicians) as all the feedback, appreciation and love I’m still getting in every place I go.
“I know as well you cannot be liked by everybody, but I will not tolerate to somebody to call my work ‘cheap’… No Sir.
